The cacaos are fairly true from seed, and most plants are started from seed. But if you need an exact replica for some reason then you need to start from cuttings.

You can graft them very easy, the cambium is soft and thick...easy to work with.

Hope you graft a bunch.

Hi,
Here's a vid on Cacao Propagation!

Time is like a river.
You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
Enjoy every moment of your life!
